As night falls over De Gashouder, Irvine Arditti and André Richard perform the dreamlike La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura for solo violin and tape. The title refers to a nostalgic hankering which offers limitless new possibilities. While Arditti plays his music from multiple music stands spread across the stage and the auditorium, Richard operates eight sound tracks with electronically processed recordings of violin improvisations by Gidon Kremer and a wide range of ambient sound recordings.
